I decided to go vegan this week. It's been surprisingly easy and I can already feel my pants getting looser. (Woo hoo!) While I this won't be a permanent thing, I'm def gonna try to limit my meat intake in the future. The best part of going meatless is discovering the immense variety of non-meat stuff that's out there. Kale! Swiss Chard! Tempeh! Yum. One thing I crave when I'm on the healthy train is a bite of something crispy and crunchy. I found this recipe for kale chips and it totally satisfies that craving. Enjoy!
1 bunch kale
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoons olive oil
(Optional: Red chili powder and cumin powder.)
Pre-heat oven to 350°F Rinse and thoroughly dry kale. Pull leaves from stem and tear into bite-sized pieces. Toss kale, salt, olive oil, and optional spices in a bowl. Place on cookie tray (be sure they are evenly spaced and not overlapping). Cook for 20 minutes until crisp. You'll know when they're ready when they turn a dark green and the sides turn up.
Who needs movie popcorn and Cool Ranch Doritos when you got kale chips? (Let's be honest, everyone. But these make a great, delicious, crispy 'n' salty substitute.)
